Dinas Powys Community Cinema

Dinas Powys Community Cinema screened Welsh film Hedd Wyn, alongside a two course meal. The screening formed part of the Welsh language events taking place as part of the Dinas Powys commemorations of WW1 alongside a month of other Remembrance events.

 

Pontardawe Arts Centre

Pontardawe Arts Centre screened Canaries, which was filmed locally, with a Q&A with one of the cast/crew, in an attempt to attract a younger audience. 

 

Sinema Sadwrn

Sinema Sadwrn screened three documentaries about rural Wales; Sleep Furiously, Dial-a-Ride and A Good Bitch. They hoped to screen films that reflected the issues that faced their rural audience, in particular older people. All the films were bilingual. 

 

The Welfare

The Welfare screened Canaries, with a Q&A with cast and crew. This film screening enabled  community members to celebrate welsh film talent, which includes cast and crew from the area of Ystradgynlais and Wales wide, where the venue is located.
